Medical Specialties

At the Center for Neurosciences, we work together across specialties to provide the best, most comprehensive approach to treatment.

Conditions We Treat

As the medical and surgical foundation for Ear & Hearing at the Center for Neurosciences, the Otology, Neurotology and Cranial Base Surgery program offers complete diagnostic care, treatment, and rehabilitation of complex ear diseases. Headed by Dr. Abraham Jacob, fellowship-trained and board-certified in Otology/Neurotology, specific expertise is now available for treatment of skull base tumors (vestibular schwannomas/acoustic neuromas as well as posterior cranial fossa meningiomas), facial nerve disorders, primary/revision middle ear and mastoid surgery as well as implantable hearing technologies (cochlear implants, bone anchored hearing aids, and implantable hearing aids).
